Open Hands Lyrics

by Ingrid Michaelson

Nobody wants to be the only one left standing
Nobody wants to be the only one to understand
And now I'm seeing the way that you're leaving
Without me

Now grow up and drift away
No toy can hold you out
Go crying out
The sound goes silent
Open hands are hard to hold on to anyway
Anyway

Everybody wants the world to make them live forever
And nobody wants to be the only one who sees the pain
And now I'm seeing the way that you're leaving
Without me

Now grow up and drift away
No toy can hold you out
Go crying out
The sound goes silent
Open hands are hard to hold on to anyway
Anyway, anyway, anyway

Now grow up and drift away
No toy can hold you out
Go crying out
The sound goes silent
Open hands are hard to hold on to
Anyway, open hands are hard to hold on to
Anyway, open hands are hard to hold on to
Anyway, anyway, anyway
